Orange is the New Black season 2 finally has a premiere date–June 6–and more spoilers are coming out about the upcoming season for the Netflix show.
Let’s check them out:
-Taystee, recently back in prison after getting arrested following her release, is going to appear more often. “I’m going to tease you a little bit about Taystee [in] season two—you’ll get more of me!” Danielle Brooks told Entertainment Weekly. “The only thing I can give you is that for me Taystee has shocked me for season two so I think people will be excited to see what she does in season two.”
-Poussey’s character will also be explored more. “We will see Poussey’s back story so I hope people are excited about that. I’m excited about that,” Samira Wiley said. “We will see a lot more of her in prison. I feel like in season one, she’s really seen as the joyous sidekick for Taystee and that’s great,” she added. “She’s such a good friend and really good at that, but we’ll see really more of her, her morals, where her loyalty lies, who she is as a woman, all that kind of stuff.”
-John Bennett may or may not be doing more shirtless scenes. “I don’t know if I could give any of that away,” Matt McGorry told Entertainment Weekly. “I don’t know if I can tell you any of that.” He did say that there will be more drama between Bennett and Dayanara. “You can’t exactly have candlelight dinners,” McGorry said. “You’ll get to see Bennett sweat a lot.”
-Pennsatucky is alive. After trying to kill Piper she was beaten badly by Pipes but she’s still alive.
-Alex Vause will actually be in “most” of the season after rumors about Laura Prepon only being in four episodes. “Yes, yes, she is coming back,” Jenji Kohan told Us Weekly. “Not the whole season, but…you’ll see her for most of it.”
-Season 2 is going to be “wild,” Taryn Manning (Tiffanny ‘Pennsatucky’ Doggett) told Access Hollywood. “The show just continues to get wild and the writing is supreme,” she said. “You just get to peek in a little bit more into the characters and you really start to get to know other characters that maybe you didn’t get to know in Season 1.” She added that there are “all kinds of surprises in store.”
